    • Synopsis
    • The hotly anticipated feature film based on the trailer from Robert Rodriguez’s GRINDHOUSE, the script follows an ex-Mexican Federale, Machete, who is hiding out in Texas as a day laborer. Impressed by his hulking physique, Machete is hired by a corrupt senator to do hatchet jobs. When Machete realizes that the corrupt politicians who hired him have actually set him up for their own personal gain, he vows to seek redemption for himself and his people. The project has been dubbed a Mexploitation thriller by Rodriguez’s long-time collaborator and friend, Quentin Tarantino.
